This Wind Is Cold and Deafening

by The Chemical Mind

​ Whose body is this? I have no place here In the cave, I cower and huddle for warmth I can’t muster up the strength to tear apart the twine that holds me in place Where do I find the image of god inside me? Has it been torn apart? Was it ever even there? This is the only thought in my mind This is the only thought in my mind
​ It will take me a year to wake up from this dream Where the wind is cold and deafening drowning out the voice I hate, but the words I need to speak But when I awake, will I be in her warm embrace? Or will the frigid air make way for a burning light?


The third release by The Chemical Mind; a single piece comprised of four movements. For this piece, I wanted to experiment with electronic elements incorporated into my usual atmospheric black metal sound. I also wanted to push a little further into the harsh, dark, and dissonant aspects of black metal. As a result, this piece features some of the heaviest and harshest music I've written, as well as some of the most peaceful and serene.
